Hello students and families;

 

Wow!  The weather is finally starting to improve and temperatures are getting warmer.  As we approach the end of the school year there are a few things I would like to mention.  

 

Letters will be sent home if your children have prescribed medication in my office.  These letters are to remind you to pick up your child's medication before 12:00 pm on the last day of school.  Medications that are not picked up by that time will be disposed of.

 

REMINDER TO PARENTS OF CURRENT 6TH GRADERS:  If I haven't received the documentation of your child's Tdap and/or Menactra (Meningitis) vaccines please send it to me ASAP!  All incoming 7th graders are required by law to have the documentation of these vaccines provided to the school no later than August 25, 2014.  Don't wait until the last minute!

 

Summertime is a good time to schedule annual physicals and dental check-ups.  If you are planning to have your children exameined by their doctor and/or dentist please contact me.  I will be happy to assist you with the appropriate forms.

 

Students will be involved in outdoor activities such as baseball, track and field, tennis, and other sports. It is especially important to monitor for head injuries.  The following links are helpful resources for parents: http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/youth.html  and  http://mdpoison.com/families/pppress.html

    

If you or your child’s physician decides that is necessary for your child to receive medication during the school day,  the following regulation must be followed:

 

The physician’s order may be written on a special medication form obtained from the school nurse, (Parents may also download the Parent’s Request to Administer Medication in School form from the Office of School Health Services website at: http://www.bcps.org/offices/sss/health/ ) or the physician may use his/her own office letterhead stationery.  

 

The medication must be sent to the school in the original or a duplicate box or bottle with the current prescription label on the container.  It is not acceptable for medicine to be put in plastic bags, foil, tissue, or plastic wrap containers, etc.  Upon request, the pharmacy will provide an empty labeled container to be used for the school nurse.  

 

Students are not permitted to bring any type of medication to school per Baltimore County Public Schools Policy.  This policy is written in every student's handbook and it is strictly enforced. Please make sure to reinforce this policy with your child and keep medications at home.  Some examples of medicines that are not permitted in school include: eye drops, ointments, asthma inhalers, creams, pills, capsules, allergy medication, ADHD medication, Midol, etc.

 

Please do not allow your child to bring scented lotions, oils, or perfumes to school because these products cause an allergic or asthmatic reaction in other students and school staff.
